We’ll get out an official release on Tuesday. In the meantime we wanted to distribute a video out to the community confirming Peercoin’s involvement at the upcoming Trekcon Springfield from the organizers of Blankfish.

Announcement Peercoin will be the official crypto currency:

We will be working with coinpayments.net over the next few weeks to integrate the payment processor. For additional proof, Trekcon Springfield also confirmed our coin acceptance on their Facebook October 30th.

Confirmed celebrities include:

  • Tim Russ (Tuvok) - DS9
  • Cirroc Lofton (Jake Sisko) - DS9
  • Ethan Phillips (Neelix) - Voyager
  • Chase Masterson(Leeta) - DS9

The rest of the list of celebrities can be found at http://trekconspringfield.com/

2000 Peercoin Giveaway

The Peercoin team is also giving away 1 Peercoin for the first 2000 people that walk through the door.

Summary

We’re grateful for the opportunity to not only be able to offer Peercoin as the exclusive crypto currency for purchase of tickets and merchandise, we’ll also have an opportunity to demo the coin and talk to local vendors about future integration. There’s still so much more to be done, this is a great first step. The team confirmed they are more than happy to do a AMA with the community.


Recommendation

As a side note, if you haven’t had a chance to visit our friends over at CoinMKT.com, I’d recommend heading over there today and grabbing some Peercoin.

Wow very cool

It’s a great way to let ppl understand the virtues of PPC. :slight_smile:

Thanks,

Perhaps you could also try setting up a booth where people could exchange USD for PPC, get a wallet set up, etc… and talk a couple of vendors into giving small discounts for using PPC.

That was the next big surprise, you nailed it. :slight_smile: We’ll also have Peercoin volunteers on hand to help with this process.
